Foot and Ankle Physiotherapy in Edmonton

Foot and Ankle Physiotherapy

We are aware of how challenging it may be to move around if you have foot pain for whatever reason, be it an illness or an injury. Even actions that should be rather basic, like standing or walking, can become very stressful. Quit putting up with foot pain, get a right foot massage, and start healing right away so you can go where you want to!

If you are wondering what causes foot pain, there are many reasons, let’s look at these:

Injury: Trauma or injury to the foot, such as sprains, fractures, or strains, can cause foot pain.

Overuse: Overuse or repetitive strain injuries, such as plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis can cause foot pain.

Structural problems: Structural problems with the foot, such as flat feet or high arches, can cause foot pain and discomfort.

Arthritis: Arthritis, a joint disorder that causes inflammation and stiffness in the joints, can affect the foot and cause pain.

Nerve problems: Nerve problems, such as neuropathy or nerve entrapment, can cause pain, numbness, or tingling in the foot.

Circulation problems: Poor circulation, often caused by conditions such as diabetes or peripheral artery disease, can cause foot pain and swelling.

Infections: Infections, such as an athlete’s foot or a foot abscess, can cause foot pain and discomfort.

Wearing improper footwear: Wearing ill-fitting or unsupportive footwear such as high heels or flip-flops can cause foot pain and discomfort.
